2.4 liter CIS
1973 Porsche 911T Targa in Original Light Ivory
Only two owners and numbers matching. Second owner owned for 43 years. Rust free original front suspension pan, floors and rockers. The original 2.4 liter CIS engine has received one professional rebuild and currently runs very strong with excellent leakdown test results. The improved Carrera tensioners were installed at the time of the engine rebuild. Very well maintained by it’s second owner with a $3000 service just completed. Original 915 five speed transmission shifts excellent. Amazingly,the body is still wearing most of it’s original Light Ivory paint (color code 131) and original black leatherette interior with excellent original dash top. Excellent panel gaps. Both doors shut with factory ping. Originally ordered from factory with 911S gauges, 911S front brake calipers and a factory steel 911S front spoiler. Excellent Koni shocks are installed. Original owner’s manual, service records back to 1973 including engine rebuild receipt and original toolkit. The CIS injected 2.4 liter 911T is long known to be the smoothest driving of all the early 911’s. This is a great opportunity to purchase a very original 1973 Porsche 911T Targa with only two owners.
Late in the production run of 1973, Porsche started to install the more advanced Bosch K-jetronic (CIS) fuel injection system into the 911T models sold in the US. From an engineering perspective, these 911T models are the most advanced version of the early 911 combining the looks of the early cars with the drivability/reliability of the late model cars. The 2.4 liter CIS engine develops 148hp and provides a very smooth yet powerful ride.
This body style is the Targa configuration. The center roof is easily removable and once removed it can be folded up and stored in the trunk. The passengers are protected by a fixed roll bar. The Targa was the only open top design for the 911 in 1973. The 911 Cabriolet was not developed until 1983, 10 years later.
